My father had the same problem I have, but to a much smaller extent. My father's father (my grandfather) had it worse still. It is part of my conclusion that abuse has been handed down in that side of the family from father to son. The eye problem appears after abuse. Not all people with the problem were abused, and not all abused people develop the problem. My grandfather was orphaned at age 8 and he was sent to live with a family where he was apparently abused. The problem is more prevalent in boys than girls.

In my recent post on body memories I have pictures which document the development of my eye problem after abuse.

Farmer Boy, I also went through high school without reading all the books and assignments. I think that some boys in that situation simply drop out of school at that point. This means that abuse often contributes to drop out rate.
